  1. Inscribed on both sides, but the verso is all but illegible because of corrosion. Inscribed area dimensions estimated from photo.

A single copper plate weighing 180 grams, without thicker rims. Engraved shallowly and badly damaged by corrosion. A seal was originally attached to the proper right (of the first page). All that remains is a circular projection with a corroded hole in the middle. The seal would have been soldered here and may have been 4.5 cm in diameter.

Inscriptions
  1. Inscribed on both sides of the plate. Campus size (for the recto face) estimated from photo.

A single copper plate the proper right half of which is lost. The dimensions above are those of the extant portion. The upper right corner of this was broken off and lost in the Calcutta Industrial Exhibition of 1906-07; this is reported to have contained the characters ma and ra which may have been part of the name of Kumāragupta (#Bandhopadhyaya_1909:459).

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription is only on one side of the plate. There seem to be practically no margins.

A single copper plate inscribed on both sides. The proper right side (verso) of the plate bulges outward in the middle, where a seal was likely attached. The plate weighs 367 grams. The dimensions given above probably pertain to the inscribed area, not to the whole plate.

Inscriptions
  1. Single plate, 14 lines on recto and 15 lines on verso. The right edge (recto view) of the plate seems to have broken off, obliterating the last character of some lines on the recto face. Dimensions above probably pertain to the inscribed area but may instead be those of the entire plate.

A single plate engraved on both sides, weighing 606 grams. There is an oval projection in the middle of the (viewer's, recto) left side, to which a now lost seal would have been attached. There is a triangular hole in the centre of the oval. Judging from the indentation of the lines next to this area, the seal would have been about 8 cm in diameter.

Inscriptions
  1. Sixteen lines on the recto, eighteen on the verso, with both faces covered entirely by the inscription. The last line of the verso, containing the date, is squeezed into very little space and contains characters only in two places, near the centre of the line and near the end. The dimensions above are for any one face.
